Closest Airport to Every US National Park

When you go to any of our National Park pages, we list the 10 closest airports to the main entrance of each park. However, when building our road trips, we wanted an easy way to find the closed major airports to each park in one easy table.

Table Caveats

  • We determined the “nearest airport” via straight line calculations. We did not use actual driving directions to determine this.
  • There are hundreds of small and regional airports that we omitted from this table. We are only focusing on airports that are considered “Large” or “International”.
